Welcome to Qhispikay Kawsay Ayahuasca Retreats, pronounced Kiss-pi-KI Cow-sigh, meaning liberation of one’s life. We offer varied traditional shamanic healing programs at our 600-acre Amazon rainforest nature preserve outside of Iquitos, Peru. This retreat is an introduction to the consciousness and healing afforded through the shamanic work with Ayahuasca and Huachuma.

Join us in traditional Ayahuasca and Huachuma ceremonies led by Banco Ayahuasquero Don Romulo and his son, Master Ayahuasquero Don Winister. Don Romulo began training as a shaman and drinking Ayahuasca with his father when he was eight years old. His curing work with Ayahuasca began when he was 12, and he is an incredible Ayahuasca shaman with over 70 years experience as a healer. His son Don Winister is also an amazing master Ayahuasca shaman with great ability and experience spanning over 30 years. Currently, Don Romulo is one of the oldest traditional masters left in the region of Iquitos, Peru, over 80 years of age. Huachumero William Menech and Huachumero Luis will conduct the San Pedro ceremonies.

Our Plant Medicines Ayahuasca & San Pedro

We know the time and effort it takes you to travel all the way to Peru to work with the plant medicines, so we make sure that the medicine is of the highest caliber. We prepare our Ayahuasca with Cielo Ayahuasca, Chacruna, Huambisa, and Bobinsana. These particular plant mixtures are used to help really open up the vision. They are a strong yet safe combination. Our San Pedro is cooked in the traditional fashion starting with live cactus and secret techniques utilized by the ancients to fully potentiate the healing San Pedro brings.

Ayahuasca Ceremonies

During the Ayahuasca ceremonies, you will be digging deeper into the inner realms of your soul, while shamans will be probing and detecting different spiritual, psychic, and physical issues you may be dealing with. Our shamans do work and spiritual treatment on every guest. Ceremonies begin about 8:00 p.m. and end when the last of the shamanic treatment is over, which is about 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. All the shamans will be defining and treating spiritual issues and opening up your insight and shamanic vision concerning your own personal growth and for your own personal development in shamanic spiritual matters.

Huachuma or San Pedro

The Huachuma ceremonies, which will begin approximately at 1 P.M. and continue until midnight or later, depending on the work being done. Huachuma is a sacred medicine that connects to healing spirits that reside outside the initiate, as opposed to the internal realms to which Ayahuasca connects. Huachuma aligns Ayahuasca in the body and spirit. All of this work is done through the skilled use and direction of Huachumero William Menech. The true purpose of San Pedro is to advance your spiritual life and connection to the energy of celestial realms. After the Huachuma ceremony, the energy of Huachuma will continue to teach and direct your life ever so subtly long after you leave the jungle and our retreat center. They will fortify your spirit with positive energy and help guide you to find your life’s purpose.

Energetic Plant Baths

After the fourth Ayahuasca ceremony, Don Romulo and Don Winister will be administering energetic plant baths that help seal in the work done with Ayahuasca also helping with spiritual flowering, energetic cleansing and good fortune by using many different plants in the baths which have energetic signatures that function by intermingling with the guest receiving the baths. After the plant baths, each shaman will seal in a part of their medicine, the Tobacco, Huachuma and Ayahuasca. And all will impart strong spiritual protection that will be sealed upon the initiate so it remains permanently with them after they leave the jungle. This process is a real shamanic initiation and purification that opens the initiate to the greater spiritual world that we are all a part of, increasing your awareness with more clarity of the operations of reality as perceived by the initiate. Always giving thanks to the creator for creating these sacraments to help mankind heal and advance spiritually.
